This Week in History at Casual Kitchen:

Ask Casual Kitchen: Best Investing Books (September 2010)
Admittedly this post is a bit far afield from food, but long-time CK readers know that I used to live inside the Matrix, working as a Wall Street analyst and picking stocks so that rich people could get richer. Here's a post where I share some of my favorite investing resources for regular people.

Keyword Gawking (September 2009)
Do you ever gaze at your blog's analytics, seeking out the most ridiculous search terms that bring visitors to your site? I call this dubious pastime Keyword Gawking, and in this post I share the weirdest and most hilarious keywords that actually brought readers to Casual Kitchen.
